7 16 2009 Kilo time - 1:20.98


KILO:
Today in the evening racing we had to do a Kilo after the points race. My time was improved over my personal best time by about one second. Not bad after racing a points race and then doing a Kilo.

Time - 1:20.98
Gear - 50 x 14 = 96"
Aero bars
Aero helmet
Mavic Ellipse spoked wheels

Splits:
200 meter - 20.16 - 20.16
400 meter - 35.36 - 15.20
600 meter - 50.48 - 15.12
800 meter - 1:05.39 - 14.51
1000 meter - 1:20.98 - 15.59

My goal is to get a 1:19 or better. The larger 96" gear felt better than my usual 90" gear (50 x 15). Hopefully I can shave that extra couple of seconds off by using the rear disk and front tri spoke wheel.

FLYING 200:
We also did a flying 200 meter after the Scratch race, legs felt like jello after the Kilo and the Scratch race, so with limited recovery, I only managed a 13.07 in the 96" gear. I am happy with this time and my new method of riding the flying 200 meter. I will do a faster time during States, next week. Also I have noticed the Mavic Ellipse wheels are better for this event and match sprinting, they spin up faster and feel very positive in the turns.

WEATHER:
Temp - 82F
Humidity - 70%
Pressure - 29.77
